Hello, my hubby and I are new BB users and are loving it - however we have not been able to figure out how to synch both on one laptop. Would like to be able to do that mainly to jive personal calendar items that both of us need to have.
I am coming from a Palm and am used to the Palm Desktop software which was really simple. It's my understanding that BB does not provide a desktop software and I need to install Outlook?
Thank you so much for any help!

What are you using for an Outlook type application now?
Please mention the OS of the PC and the models of the phones

I was using the Palm Desktop software. My OS is Vista. I have purchased (but not opened/installed) Outlook and if it's possible to have the 2 BB's synch on 1 computer, then I think Outlook would be useful for its shared scheduling and I'd be willing to keep it.

I would first create 2 users for the computer one for each. Install Outlook for both users. Each will have their own calendars, contacts etc. Then you can switch users and sync from your own calendars. Coordinating events can either be manually entered, or you can send invites.
Let me know your thoughts!

No just make sure you both have rights to it. Most importantly!! You will have to keep the backups separate! I would keep each in a separate directory.
If you have anymore questions fell free to ask, if not please resolve the thread using the options by the yellow star.
You can always open a new thread whenever you like.
Thanks, and hope we gave you some good ideas!
